The BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is a luxury sedan from the 7 Series and is offered by the Bavarian Group since April 2010. In combination of petrol and electric motor of the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is sold as a hybrid vehicle and enriches the upper class with a sparingly moving limousine. In the first interpretation of the BMW ActiveHybrid 7, which was built in the period to July 2012 worked a V8 gasoline engine with direct injection and twin turbocharged under the bonnet and an electric motor, which was flanged to the 8-speed automatic. The resulting system output of 465 hp enough for 4.9 seconds from zero to 100 and a top speed of 250 km / h (electronically limited). Could impress this BMW ActiveHybrid 7 already with a combined fuel consumption of just 9.4 L/100 km. In this horsepower class an outstanding value. Since July 2012, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 become even more frugal : the V8 was replaced with direct-injection six-cylinder that produces 320 horsepower using a turbocharger. Parallel to the electric motor has been strengthened, which introduces 54 hp. Although the resulting 5.4 seconds with 354 hp need some more time to bring the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 on road level, but the consumption to 5.7 liters per 100 km could be minimized.
